Happy 18th birthday, parterre box

To think, if I’d had a kid instead, he could be out there supporting me now, or at least off at college smoking dope and getting laid.

    Well, although I seldom leave a comment here because of all the esoteric knowledge and incredible bitchery on display, I can at least congratulate myself on actually sending La Cieca hard-earned dollars to receive a hard copy in the mail (18 years ago?? -- that seems a LONG time), for what it’s worth. Now if I could only FIND a hard copy somewhere in the files…
